With its award-winning progression of terrain parks, Loon Mountain Resort is the ideal training ground for aspiring snowboarders and freeskiers - and the Competition Team is how they reach the next level.
The Competition Team (aka the ‘Comp Team’) is Loon’s most intensive seasonal program, designed for athletes who wish to spend the winter competing and training in USASA and USSA events in freestyle skiing, freestyle snowboarding, and alpine snowboarding. In recent years, Loon athletes have traveled to the USASA National Championships, notched podium finishes, and earned a reputation for excellence.
Comp Team athletes learn from freestyle-focused coaches many with competition backgrounds and certificates through PSIA/AASI, USASA and USSA. Coaches work with athletes to promote sportsmanship and develop a strong work ethic, athleticism, and pride. Team members meet at their own private facility where they discuss training techniques, share lunch, and form new friendships.
